VdA organises in partnership with APDC - Portuguese Association for the Development of Communications, the Webinar on "Data Economy", which will take place online on January 12, between 9.30am and 11am, with the participation of Fernando Resina da Silva, Magda Cocco, Tiago Bessa, Sandra Fazenda Almeida (Executive Director, APDC), Manuel Dias (National Technology Officer, Microsoft), Pedro Machado (Country Senior Director, DPO, Ageas Group Portugal),  and Ricardo Rosa (Head of Innovation, Sonae Sierra).

This Webinar is the fourth event resulting from the VdA and APDC partnership called "Digital Union" and aims to promote reflection and debate on the opportunities of the data economy, the creation of a single data market and its regulatory framework - under definition by the European Union - on the areas of governance, access and reuse of data within the EU, as well as its impact on the national market.

Some of the issues to be analysed will be: How to create in practice a single market, drawing the full potential of data? How can a level playing field be ensured? Are companies open to sharing their data? How best to overcome imbalances between member states? How to manage matters such as GDPR, privacy, transparency and fundamental rights?
